Making connections isn’t easy for everyone.
My Domain Renewed For 2021-2022 #WordPressdotcom #WordPress
My domain is renewed for another year of blogging and fun. Sure, WordPress has had some interesting developments but I am good to roll with the punches. Connection, communication and conversation are important things when blogging and I am glad I have a platform to do all that here.
Thanks to you all for continuing to support me, like my posts and connect here. Keep on blogging good people. Love and peace.
Quote Of The Day
In a very real sense, we are all aliens on a strange planet. We spend most of our lives reaching out and trying to communicate. If during our whole lifetime, we could reach out and really communicate with just two people, we are indeed very fortunate..Gene Roddenberry, creator of TV’s “Star Trek”
The Slippery Social Media Slope
Everyone reading who reads blogs, Tweets, timeline posts, or watches vlogs and the like is actively involved in social media of some sort. There is a difference between opinion and fact, truth, and lies. Right now there is a bunch of gray between what is reality and fantasy. My friends having some certainty and stability in the chaos of this life we are all leading is so necessary right now.
My opinion of Donald Trump is that he is a vile, evil, son of a bitch who has no empathy or care for anyone other than himself. Others would differ.
With all that being said we live in a time when it has been documented that he and other politicians live somewhere between true and false statements.
In the pandemic age we live in we need facts and we are getting them from public health professionals who have studied and prepared for a time like this.
When it comes to democracy making it easier for people to vote and participate is necessary for any nation to choose the right people to lead and hopefully serve. To spread lies about mail-in voting does great harm.
My friends the regulation or deregulation depending on the circumstances of social media is a slippery slope. Especially when it’s coming from a person who uses the technology to bully, intimidate, lie, and to undermine our society. When you are supposed to be the leader of the free world words matter and his words seem to do great harm to many.
I am concerned because without checking the facts what can be said on Twitter might as well be the gospel truth in the mind of those who choose not to research further and to get more information. All of this is scary and everyone who is a content creator of some sort has to stand up and speak out. For many, their livelihoods are at stake.
My friends, be vigilant, and use the tools you have to make your voice heard and seen.
Daily Prompt: Heard
People with voices want to be heard. Sometimes the issue is about listening. Noise can make it hard to be heard. When people speak they have a strong desire to be understood for comprehension for respect. Protesters want their message to get across to those who they hope will receive it. To be heard is to be loved and cared about. It’s always good to let those in your life know they are heard too.
Sometimes I wonder if what I’m saying makes sense or is kind as it leaves my mouth? My foot finds itself in my mouth on occasion.
Rambling About Talking
I don’t talk as much as I used to but that is still too much, I think. Getting a word in edgewise in some conversations can be difficult though. I am one that likes to fill the space that is void of sound. Communication is important though and requires listening too. I do need to listen more. Talking can be hard when you want try to find the opportunity to share what is on your heart. Sometimes there needs less words and more actions though.
